Current reality

http://www.lanacion.com.ar/1655342-e...eas-argentinas

The heavy cost of Aerolineas Argentinas (machine translation)

It is untenable that the Government continue consenting nationalized the airline loses huge sums , not present balances and prevent competition

Since its nationalization in 2008 Aerolíneas Argentinas - Austral group claimed 3916 State contributions billion. This implies a daily average of 1.95 million, which weighs on all taxpayers and on inflation because demand supplementary monetary issue .

The first question is whether such a high subsidy to air travelers at the expense of other more pressing needs is warranted. This doubt is accentuated against the phenomenon of poverty does not decrease . Our answer is naturally negative. In the same way thought the governments of Brazil and Uruguay when they decided not rescue companies with public funds Varig and TAM Airlines , apart from chauvinistic , demagogic or union arguments. In these two cases , as surely would have happened in Argentina , not only the air demand was covered by other companies without spending state funds , but also , in the case of Brazil , aviation doubled.

A second observation concerns the efficiency with which has managed Aerolineas Argentinas. The losses do not constitute or characteristic structural feature of the commercial aviation business , as mistakenly says President Cristina Kirchner. Not when a company is reserved market shares and locking limiting competition from other companies. Indeed, they are known maneuvers discrimination applied by local aviation authorities to other companies , particularly LAN , which will prevent the use of sleeves, trying to exclude it from Aeroparque and not allowed to bring new aircraft to strengthen their services. Additionally, Network World , controlled by airlines unilaterally changed the conditions for contracting with existing LAN.

Thus, the monopoly ensures Airlines on routes with which boasts of being the only one who travels . Given this monopoly , the paradox that those routes , you do not play , are the only ones where not lose money is given . Why? Because I charge very high rates abusing its dominant position.

Since nationalization , fares Airline cabotage not stopped rising , recording since 12X , applying higher prices in regions where competition is prevented . And despite this, the company loses more and more money , while one has been strengthening in Argentina underdeveloped air transport , as each citizen takes , on average, a plane trip every five years, while every American does three times a year . Peruvians and Venezuelans also travel more frequently .

Efficiency indicators compared to other companies largely explain the reasons for the imbalance between income and expenditure. While it must be recognized that these indices were also not appropriate in the previous private management , have not been corrected for the state administration, but the opposite. 80 percent of the losses is verified on international flights , mainly for the popular destinations of Argentine tourists , which is subsidized to travel abroad . For example , airlines fly to Cancun , but not to the capital of Mexico . Stopped flying to Auckland, in New Zealand, but fly to San Salvador . Here, you will not have resumed flights to Villa Gesell.

The relationship between personnel costs and sales revenue in Airlines reaches 45% , while 30% is in Iberia, Lufthansa and 23.4 % to 21.7% in British Airways. These companies even pay higher average wages , which adversely accents comparison. Airlines has an endowment of more than 30 pilots per aircraft , 1700 in total , doubling international standards. These shortcomings are not surprising productivity when managing the company has been in the hands of persons designated more for his political activism whose experience in the activity.

The failure, lack of transparency and reliability of management information difficult to analyze productivity rates and costs . Its audited financial statements have not been presented since 2008 and the intervention of the Auditor General 's Office has resulted in several opportunities issue a disclaimer of opinion. As for management reports disclosing the company , are as implausible as the official prediction in 2011 that airlines would lose money.

A highly critical report by the NGO Forensic Accountants expressing serious doubts about the means of production and control of balance . The document states that " the management of Aerolineas Argentinas SA and has been ruinous deficit . Moreover, not have any prospects for improvement " . This is a different and opposite conclusion that the authorities have exposed the company and the Government. According to them, the operating deficit is declining and fewer contributions from the national government demand , while the very Ministry of Economy reports month after month subsidy amounts that will not stop growing . Meanwhile, the Justice investigated allegations that the company had purchased the Brazilian Embraer aircraft with a premium of 22 percent .

The nationalization of Aerolineas Argentinas still has outstanding issues related to compensation . There Crusaders in Argentina treatment for justice and others who have come before ICSID , the World Bank tribunal , which could result in additional future commitments to the Argentine State pecuniary claims. At a time when a growing fiscal deterioration that can lead to runaway inflation and monetary evidenced , for Airlines becomes very relevant and paradigmatic .

El pesado costo de Aerolíneas Argentinas

Resulta insostenible que el Gobierno siga consintiendo que la línea aérea estatizada pierda enormes sumas, no presente balances e impida la competencia

Desde su estatización en 2008 el grupo Aerolíneas Argentinas-Austral demandó aportes del Estado por 3916 millones de dólares. Esto implica un promedio diario de 1,95 millones, suma que pesa sobre todos los contribuyentes y también sobre la inflación, ya que demanda emisión monetaria suplementaria.

La primera pregunta es si se justifica tan alto subsidio hacia quienes viajan en avión en desmedro de otras necesidades más imperiosas. Esta duda se acentúa frente al fenómeno de una pobreza que no decrece. Nuestra respuesta es naturalmente negativa. De esta misma forma pensaron los gobiernos de Brasil y de Uruguay cuando decidieron no rescatar con fondos públicos las empresas Varig y Pluna, prescindiendo de argumentos chauvinistas, demagógicos o gremiales. En estos dos casos, como hubiera sucedido seguramente en la Argentina, no sólo la demanda aérea fue cubierta por otras empresas sin necesidad de dedicar fondos estatales, sino que, además, en el caso de Brasil, el transporte aéreo se duplicó.

Una segunda observación se refiere a la eficiencia con que se ha administrado Aerolíneas Argentinas. Las pérdidas registradas no constituyen ningún rasgo característico ni estructural del negocio aerocomercial, como equivocadamente afirma la presidenta Cristina Kirchner. Menos aún cuando a una compañía se le reservan porciones del mercado limitando y trabando la competencia de otras empresas. En efecto, son conocidas las maniobras de discriminación aplicadas por las autoridades aéreas locales a otras compañías, en particular a LAN, a la que se le impide el uso de mangas, se intenta excluirla del Aeroparque y no se le permite aportar nuevas aeronaves para reforzar sus servicios. Además, Intercargo, controlada por Aerolíneas, modificó unilateralmente las condiciones de contratación vigentes con LAN.

De esta manera, Aerolíneas se asegura el monopolio en aquellas rutas con las que se vanagloria de ser la única que las recorre. Dado ese monopolio, se da la paradoja de que esas rutas, en las que no compite, son las únicas donde no pierde dinero. ¿Por qué? Porque cobra tarifas altísimas abusando de su posición dominante.

Desde la estatización, las tarifas de cabotaje de Aerolíneas no dejaron de subir, registrando desde entonces 12 aumentos, aplicándose precios más elevados en las provincias en las que se ha impedido la competencia. Y, pese a ello, la empresa pierde cada vez más dinero, al tiempo que se ha ido afianzando una Argentina subdesarrollada en materia de transporte aéreo, pues cada ciudadano realiza, en promedio, un viaje en avión cada cinco años, mientras que cada estadounidense lo hace tres veces por año. Peruanos y venezolanos también viajan con mayor frecuencia.

Los indicadores de eficiencia comparados con los de otras compañías explican en gran parte las razones del desbalance entre gastos e ingresos. Si bien debe reconocerse que estos índices no eran tampoco los apropiados en la anterior gestión privada, no han sido corregidos durante la administración estatal, sino lo contrario. El 80 por ciento de las pérdidas se verifica en los vuelos internacionales, orientados principalmente a los destinos preferidos de los turistas argentinos, con lo cual se subsidia a quienes viajan al exterior. Por ejemplo, Aerolíneas vuela a Cancún, pero no a la capital de México. Dejó de volar a Auckland, en Nueva Zelanda, pero vuela a San Salvador de Bahía. Aquí, no se han retomado los vuelos a Villa Gesell.

La relación entre el gasto en personal y los ingresos por ventas alcanza en Aerolíneas al 45%, mientras que es el 30% en Iberia, 23,4% en Lufthansa y 21,7% en British Airways. Estas empresas pagan incluso salarios medios más elevados, lo que acentúa desfavorablemente la comparación. Aerolíneas dispone de una dotación de más de 30 pilotos por aeronave, 1700 en total, duplicando los estándares internacionales. Estas deficiencias de productividad no deben extrañar cuando el manejo de la compañía ha estado en manos de personas designadas más por su militancia política que por su experiencia en la actividad.

La insuficiencia, falta de transparencia y confiabilidad de la información de gestión dificultan el análisis de los índices de productividad y de los costos. Sus estados contables auditados no han sido presentados desde 2008 y la intervención de la Auditoría General de la Nación se ha traducido en varias oportunidades en una abstención de emitir opinión. En cuanto a los informes de gestión que divulga la empresa, son tan poco creíbles como el vaticinio oficialista de que en 2011 Aerolíneas dejaría de perder dinero.

Existe un muy crítico informe de la ONG Contadores Forenses que expresa serias dudas sobre la forma de elaboración y control de los balances. En ese documento se afirma que "la gestión de Aerolíneas Argentinas SA ha sido ruinosa y deficitaria. Además, no tiene perspectivas ciertas de mejora". Ésta es una conclusión diferente y opuesta a la que han expuesto las autoridades de la empresa y el propio Gobierno. Según éstos, el déficit operativo está decreciendo y cada vez se demandan menos aportes del gobierno nacional, al mismo tiempo que el mismísimo Ministerio de Economía informa mes tras mes sumas de subsidios que no paran de crecer. Mientras tanto, se investigan en la Justicia denuncias de que la empresa habría comprado las aeronaves brasileñas de Embraer con un sobreprecio del 22 por ciento.

La estatización de Aerolíneas Argentinas aún mantiene cuestiones pendientes relacionadas con las compensaciones. Hay reclamos cruzados en tratamiento por la justicia argentina y otros que se han presentado ante el Ciadi, el tribunal arbitral del Banco Mundial, que podrían ocasionar en el futuro compromisos pecuniarios adicionales al Estado argentino. En momentos en que se evidencia un deterioro fiscal creciente que puede desembocar en un desborde monetario e inflacionario, el caso de Aerolíneas se vuelve muy relevante y paradigmático.

Argentina cries out for more capacity despite Buenos Aires expansion

The new Terminal B at Ministro Pistarini International Airport (also known as Ezeiza), the principal aviation gateway in Argentina serving the capital Buenos Aires, was inaugurated in March 2013. This increased total capacity at the airport to 13 million passengers - in 2012 it handled less than 9 million.

Terminal B includes 42,300m 2 of apron space; five new gates served by boarding bridges; a built area of nearly 29,000m 2 in the terminal, including a 2,300m 2 arrivals hall and 720m 2 of shops and restaurants; 20 check-in positions; 34 immigration control posts; and 376 additional parking bays - but critics warn that the ARS570 million (USD90.4 million) development will not prevent a capacity crunch in a few years' time.

Around 80% of international flights to and from Argentina pass through Ezeiza, according to government statistics. At the inauguration of the remodelled Terminal B, attended by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, Eduardo Eurnekian, president of Corporación America, called the upgrade "one of the most important infrastructure projects in the region".

Corporación America holds a 54% majority stake in Aeropuertos Argentina 2000 (AA2000), which operates Ezeiza and 32 other airports in Argentina. The Argentine state holds a 15% stake in AA2000.
